The Peacock, Market Harborough, closes

I walked past the Peacock (where I worked as a barman during one university summer vacation) this morning and it looked thoroughly closed.

Sure enough, the Harborough Mail website reports:
The Peacock pub, a centuries old coaching inn, shut on Wednesday (January 13).

Landlords Adrian and Sharon McCarthy said a mutual decision was recahed (sic) with themselvs (sic) and brewery Marstons to close the St Mary's Place pub.
The Peacock has been closed in the past and housed an ambitious teashop called the Nutmeg Tree for a while in the 1990s.

Was it not The Nutmeg Tree?

Pizza Express seems to be favourite. Are they not part of the same company as Zizzi?

The Bigfern Guide says it was the Nutmeg Tree, so it looks like Anon 1 is right. Thanks.

Does anyone have interior pictures of the peacock pub. I'm searching for a tapestry of a peacock that my mother made, and believe it was sold to the pub.
